Premium television channels are paid subscription services that offer viewers special features such as commercial-free movies and series, documentaries, sporting events and other programming. Premium channels also offer content usually not found on other channels. As of this publication, Comcast offers five premium channels -- HBO, Showtime, Starz!, The Movie Channel and Cinemax. To get one or more of these channels free, you need to speak with a Comcast representative.
Contact your Comcast sales representative or the toll-free Comcast number on your bill.
Ask the representative about current promotions that allow you to try premiums at no additional charge or bundle deals that include premiums with the channels you already watch for the same price or a lower monthly charge.
Agree to the service change and write down the name and ID of the representative and the date and time of the call. The representative may ask you to listen to a scripted statement before he can complete the change to confirm on a recording that you really do want to make changes to your account.
